“Dr. von Cziffra-Bergs is one of the most amazing clinicians and professionals in the global Solution Focused community and has sparked a solution focused bush fire that has spread throughout Africa and this book is the culmination of that flame. Within these pages are more than stories, instead it is the very essence of this approach in action.” Elliott Connie, Director of the Solution Focused University.
“Creative Solution Building: SFBT in Southern Africa is a rich text that illustrates the practical application of SFBT within different settings and across various cultural populations.
